"I Knew You Were Trouble" as written by and Ian Thomas Ball....
You can bet your life on it
This couldn’t happen to anybody else
I knew you were trouble, I knew you were trouble
When you walked in the night, I nearly died
I should've hit the ground running, go anywhere else
I knew you were trouble, but I had to find out for myself

I shook your hand and gave you a beer
Well it’s funny how these things start
Slid in between you and your date
Even though he’s a mate of mine
He just shrugged and stepped aside

You can bet your life on it
This couldn’t happen anywhere else
I knew I was in trouble, I knew I was in trouble
When you came backstage
Oh God, it feel so contrived
I should’ve hit the ground running, go anywhere else
I knew you were trouble, but I had to find out for myself

You claimed that you were givin’ us up
Don’t need any more tunes about you
But honey I’m no Marvin Gaye
Or even Barry White, or Prince
I just need a little more time

It must be some kind of a joke
'Cause we've been laughing, laughing, laughing for hours
It feels so easy, but it’s so inconvenient
Well I guess it’s out of our hands

You can bet your life on it
This couldn’t happen to anybody else
We knew we were in trouble
We knew we were in trouble
When you led me down the steps
I followed you home
But I should’ve hit the ground running, go anywhere else
I knew you were trouble, but I had to find out for myself

I had to find out for myself
I had to find out for myself
I had to find out for myself
